THE NATURE OF MAGICK
Because of the very nature of magick,
each working should be highly
individualized and personal.
Even if following a traditional spell,
it should be tailored to your specific
needs to be most effective for you.
Understanding the basics of spell
construction will enable you to
formulate your own specific, effective
spells for any purpose you desire.
Preliminary planning is necessary. The
very first step is to decide precisely
what your desired end result is to
Before you can start, you must decide
where you are going.
You must be very
It is important, also, that you choose
your time carefully. You should take
into consideration all astrological
implications, energy currents and moon
The moon is the astronomical body
closest to us and, therefore, has a
profound influence upon us, it is very
important to choose a time when the moon
is in an astrological sign which is
appropriate for your working.
Bear in mind that magickal workings for
gain, increase or bringing things to
you, should be initiated when the moon
is waxing (from dark to full); when the
moon is waning (from full to dark), it
is time for magickal workings of
decrease or sending away.
The highest energy occurs at the full
moon and, therefore, this is the most
powerful time for magickal workings. The
new moon is the next most powerful time
Whenever possible, follow nature's
natural energy currents. There is a
natural time for starting things (a
planting time), for maturing things (a
for reaping things (a
harvest time) and, of course, a time for
rest and planning.
Flowing with these currents will make
your magickal work much easier. remember
to plan your project for a time of
It is important that you have no
distractions. Generally speaking, it is
best to work as late at night as
possible. A time when there is less
frantic energy is most appropriate. You
might consider midnight or later.
In choosing a place to do your magickal
working pay particular attention to your
needs, for you must be comfortable. Your
place should be private,
If at all possible, set aside a special
place for this purpose only. An unused
room, a special corner of your bedroom,
a quiet, secluded spot in your garden. A
place that is yours. A place that you
can come to whenever need arises and
that is as free from intrusion of others
Prior to the night of your magickal
working, gather together the things that
you will need. All of the things used
They have no inherent magick. They are
to help you create a mood. If correctly
made and used, they will trigger
primitive responses from deep within
They should be chosen with care.
Consider the purpose of your ritual and
choose your tools accordingly. If your
magick is to be sexual, your candles,
oils, incenses and so forth, should
bring forth a sexual response.
If the desired result of your magick is
tranquillity, then the tools should make
you feel calm, peaceful and serene. Any
candles you might use should not have
commercially added fragrances as these
may not be appropriate for your working.
Prior to your ritual, prepare yourself
and your equipment by any means
necessary to clean and purify.
Historically, people have fasted,
followed meticulous and detailed bathing
practices, practiced chastity and used
many other methods.
Most often a ritual bath is the
preferred method. A bath frequently
utilizing candlelight, fragrant herbs,
bath salts or sensuous oils. A sumptuous
hot bath, special bathing preparations
and appropriate lighting, combined, can
create the soothing effect which will
help in the very important step of
relaxing and clearing the mind
completely of all mundane thoughts and
experiences of the day.
Your ritual bath should, also, begin to
set the specific vibrations conducive to
your purpose into motion. You must not
only cleanse and purify but must, also,
begin to create the type of energy
Once your purification process has been

chosen in which to perform
If at all possible, you should make use
of the primitive responses set into
motion by a well chosen piece of music.
Your music should start slowly and build
to a rousing climax. As you use your
oils, light your candle or incense
utilize any other tool you have chosen),
you should begin to further intensify
the energy that you have set into motion
around you. A high degree of intensity
is vitally important.
The altered state of consciousness that
you must reach is not a meditative
state. Anything that interferes with
your ability to concentrate upon, reach
and control the high energy state
necessary to perform magick should be
avoided. Such as, screaming children, a
sink full of dirty dishes, use of
alcohol or drugs, etc.
Do not scatter your energy by attempting

Remember that magick is the manipulation
of energy, a thought is a form of energy
and a visualization is an even stronger
form of energy.
Your visualization can be a method used
to intensify further and direct your
will. Your visualization can be the
method by which you control the magickal
energy you have produced. You must know
what you want. You must see it. You must
feel the high energy flow. You must
One of the most important elements in
the practice of any form of magick is
the universal law of cause and
This means that whatever you do (or
you cause something to happen.
The most important consideration is the
universal law of retribution. this means
that no matter what you do, it comes
back to you in like kind.
It is the nature of things that as you
send something out
it gains momentum, so
that, by the time it comes back to you,
it is stronger.
